Graphic Novel by Sarah Kuhn
Illustrated by Nicole Goux
Cassandra Cain is the daughter of super-villains and a living weapon trained from birth to be the ultimate assassin. But that doesn’t mean she has to stay that way, right? She’ll have to go through an identity crisis of epic proportions to find out. But how do you figure out who you’re supposed to be when you’ve been trained to become a villain your entire life?
Shadow of the Batgirl was a lot cuter than I was expecting it to be, which is not a bad thing at all!
It’s targeted towards young adults and I felt like it was a very juvenile take on Cassandra Cain. I’m assuming she’s about 15? maybe 16? and If I was that age now I would have been obsessed with this!
The art was fun and cute, different from the other DC YA graphic novels but it still fits in well with the others.
I am Cassandra Cain. And I am here to hero you!
Er, do hero things?
Hero it up?
Her character development was obvious and well planned out for a comic, and I love that it still had fighting and action without being as brutal as regular comics. I would definitely buy all these for my nephew. This one has to be one of my favorites form the Ya graphic novels and of course I love the tiny snippets of Barbara Gordon/ Oracle and Gotham city.
This was a super fun read and I flew through it in one sitting I would definitely recommend to older and younger readers alike! 4/5 stars from me! Also check out this super cute costume creating montage, who doesn’t love those?!
